Shani and Emily were one of the first couples I ever photographed when I began my wedding photography career, after answering a model call they saw on social media. We immediately hit it off, and when they reached out a few years later to photograph their wedding at DUMBO Loft on 155 Water Street in Brooklyn…it felt like everything had just come full circle.

Shani is an actor and photographer, while Emily is a school teacher. These two creatives brought their minds together to create their own wedding that was both a reflection of their partnership and their beloved city of Brooklyn. Shani built the circular floral arrangement that hung behind them for the ceremony herself, and her mother and sister designed and made the pants/overskirt combo.

One of the sweetest details was that they had two aisles, so they could walk towards one another equally, as they do in life. Their vows brought everyone in the room to tears (even me and the bartender) and the celebration was a lighthearted event on a Sunday in August.

Instead of the usual spiel, let me give you the real scoop on what I do and why it might just be what you're looking for in your wedding photographer.

My approach? It’s all about capturing the raw, unfiltered joy and those blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments. I believe in photography that tells a story - your story - with all its unique quirks, laughter, and, of course, love.

I’m talking about the tearful smiles, the spontaneous dances, and the silent glances that speak volumes. My style is a blend of candid documentary and artistic flair, ensuring each photo feels as real and vibrant as the moment it captures. I don't just take pictures; you don't just want your picture taken, you want your memories preserved.

Welcome to the party! I’m Katherine Marchand.
